We have had the pleasure of offering Table Talk Wednesdays for three years! Now it is time to take a break and revisit where we might want to go with Table Talk.

This has been a great opportunity to bring CDSA providers and staff together to mingle and chat about a wide range of themes involving Coaching & Natural Environment Learning Practices and other topics of interest. All in all we have had 29 Table Talks and 918 attendees! It was also marvelous to have provider and CDSA staff serve as co-facilitators. Thanks to all of you who have attended , served as co-facilitators or who have read the recap on the EiExcellence blog. http://www.eiexcellence.org/blog/ . We look forward to offering new learning opportunities in the future.

Early intervention professionals are committed and busy people. It can be hard to make time to meet with other professionals. But...we all need to feel supported in our work and to identify ourselves as part of learning community. What do we love about our work, and where do we find some of the challenges? How can we get to know each other better outside of the context of IFSP teams so we can truly build those relationships with each other? Here in Mecklenburg County, we get together on the third Wednesday of each month to provide opportunities to talk about a variety of important topics in early intervention. Our facilitators include one of our network providers and a CDSA staff member, and Infant-Toddler Credit will be provided. So...bring your lunch, grab a chair, and let's talk! Oh....and we do provide dessert....
